Helping and serving others is the foundation of happiness. Themed as “Spread some Joy this Christmas”, Operation Santa Claus, the annual fundraising event jointly organised by Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) Radio 3 and the South China Morning Post (SCMP), has raised more than HK$17 million for 13 charity projects this year.
Guests at the closing ceremony, held at Crown Wine Cellars in Shouson Hill, were entertained by band leader Colin Aitchison and the China Coast Jazzmen. And 13-year-old award-winning local singer Elizabeth Stewart was also on stage to help fill the occasion with warmth. Officiating guests, Director of Broadcasting LEUNG Ka-wing and Chief Executive Officer of South China Morning Post Gary LIU then revealed the total raised -- HK$17,096,327 -- on a specially made extended scroll. They expressed heartfelt thanks for the generous support from individuals, schools, groups of workmates and corporate donors over the past two months.
Among the supporters who made this year such a success, several received special awards during the ceremony. Top School Fundraiser went to Discovery Mind School, while Shung Tak Catholic English College was awarded Most Creative School Fundraiser. This year’s Top Corporate Fundraiser was Morgan Stanley, and Swire Properties was recognized as Most Creative Corporate Fundraiser.
On Thursday's Money Talk, Richard Harris will take a closer look at the market impact of the Brexit vote in the UK and the latest developments in US-China trade tensions with Personal Wealth Adviser Enzio von Pfeil and Taiwan-based Political Risk Consultant Ross Feingold. We'll also be discussing the recent moves in the global oil markets with oil expert Vandana Hari, Founder of Vanda Insights.
On Thursday's Backchat, Brexit. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has launched a motion of no-confidence in Theresa May after the UK government suffered an unprecedented defeat over its Brexit deal. What exactly is happening and why? Whose fault is all the chaos, or is there just something systemically wrong? And, of course, what will happen next? After 9.20, cat welfare in Hong Kong.
Congratulations to Adam Roberts - Backchat Person of The Year 2018! The police veteran and his team from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Bureau were busy in early 2018 disarming buried wartime bombs found at the Wan Chai construction site for the MTR's Sha Tin to Central link. Thanks to Mr. Roberts -- who spoke to the media afterwards -- and his colleagues, the 450KG bombs, dropped during the Second World War, were safely defused. Thanks also to our listeners for taking part in the poll, and for your great support!
Congratulations to our very own Steve James, who’s been declared top on-air personality in the main Asia-wide broadcasting awards, the ABU Prizes. Steve has been hailed as number one for his weekday afternoon show by the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union – which has a network of members that can reach 3 billion people across the region! It’s great recognition for Steve, who’s been with Radio 3 for the past 17 years. As well as hosting his show, The Steve James Afternoon Drive – to give it its full title – with its comic social observations, parody songs and social media engagement, he’s also the producer of Vintage Chart Toppers, and works his magic on lots of the Radio 3 trails and theme tunes that you hear every day. In all, RTHK won four top prizes in the seven radio categories – an unprecedented success – the others coming in the documentary, news reporting and community service announcement sections.
